Southern Gila County’s Community Wildfire Protection Plan exists in response to the Healthy Forests Restoration Act for at risk cities and communities in Southern Gila County.
Written and edited by fire and emergency management professionals, the plan has been updated and fine-tuned at each five year mark. Objectives for 2021 include updating community hazards and values at risk, invite suggestions for local activities that could reduce the threat of wildfires, and ways we can improve public and firefighter safety.
Local residents: that’s where you come in!
The 2021 update of our CWPP invites local communities to address their wildfire risk by evaluating wildfire risks and coming up with options for mitigating those risks. Gila County wants to know your concerns and your ideas for how we can improve the plan and make our community more resilient to wildfire.
The survey takes less than 10 minutes, and your input is extremely valuable in helping us to create an effective Community Wildfire Protection Plan localized to Southern Gila County.
